    Last week, we reported that Samsung is working on a souped up version of the Galaxy J7. Now, Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy J7 Prime for the Vietnamese market. The new smartphone features higher screen resolution, increased RAM and storage, a fingerprint scanner, and a better front-facing camera compared to the Galaxy J7 (2016).

    The Galaxy J7 Prime features a 5.5-inch 1080p display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 protection, a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/1.9 aperture and 1080p video recording, and an 8-megapixel secondary camera with f/1.9 aperture. It uses a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. Moreover, it also comes with a fingerprint sensor embedded into its home button. The Galaxy J7 Prime keeps the Galaxy J7 (2016)'s 3,300mAh battery.

    The all metal device has a thin waistline at 8.1mm, and comes with LTE Cat. 4, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and a microUSB 2.0 connectivity. Samsung has priced the Galaxy J7 Prime at VND 6,290,000 (around $280) in the country, and pre-orders start from today.
